Baker's Market 2010!

Up bright and early with Dan and my sister Britt getting the table ready for the baker's market!

The edible dinosaurs sold out immediately! Tiny cake dinosaurs with chocolate rocks and a label on the back where you could name your own dinosaur! I also sold out of the mini ovens that came complete with a 1/2 dozen cookies! Butterfinger cookies and chocolate chip. Mmmm!

I'm happy to say that we sold most of the dog treats and raised $70 for carried through rescue. Thanks to Carrie for coming out and providing information for adoption!

Yes, those are cake pops, but I decided to call them baby cakes! I made golden cake with chocolcate frosting, dipped in chocolate and the festive halloween ones are carrot cake with cream cheese icing, dipped in vanilla orange chocolate. Are those burgers, fries, pies and picnic cupcakes? You bet! It was a chance to really be creative and try something different!

Oh! Look who it is! Mr.Sprinkles came along to promote deliciousness! Thanks Britt for the little guy!

Free samples were gobbled and enjoyed by all! I had soo much fun and really enjoyed meeting lots of people!

Mini cupcake samples tumbling out of my little oven! And free cookie samples!

The table cloth is courtesy of my fabulous mom, dad and sister.  A joint effort built by them for my birthday this year!

Thank you soooo much to everyone that came out for your support! I had a great time and I hope you did too!

This is Kody! My boyfriend, Dan, and I, adopted her in April from a lovely rescue called Carried Through Animal Rescue and Education.  Check out their website! Carrie Corbett is the amazing person that arranged the adoption and has many more cats and dogs that need loving homes.

Saturday, October 23 at the Vancouver Baker's market, I will be there selling baked goodies and giving away free samples.  I am also selling some peanut butter dog treats, at a minimum donation of $5 a bag.  All the proceeds from the dog treats will be donated to their vet, the Burnaby New Westminster Veterinary Clinic.  Your donations and generosity is greatly appreciated! Carrie will also be there with information on adoption and the work that they do.  I look forward to seeing you there!

Whoopie for Mickey!

I've been dying to try a recipe for Whoopie pies, so I used my friend's birthday as the excuse! Not that I ever need an excuse for baking.

My mom and dad found a Wilton pan with mini Mickey faces! I made a devil's food cake for the pie part and sliced their faces to make the sammich part.

I made a standard marshmallow filling with icing sugar, butter, vanilla and marshmallow goo.  I spread the gooey concoction on the inside of his face then placed the top part of his face, creating delicious-ness!

Voila! Mickey Whoopie Pies! Soooo good!
